The backstory of AFRICAN MENAGERIE consists of a calculated subtext intended to dramatize the urgency of the moment to save not just the great iconic species of Africa, but also wildlife across all of our shrinkingly-diverse enironmentally-threatened planet.
In Brian Jarvi’s African Menagerie, a museum tour produced by David J. Wagner LLC, “seven large panoramic panels form a sweeping, grand panorama of the African savannah and the animal kingdom contained therein.” Jarvi’s work was featured in an article by Todd Wilkinson written for the MAHB Art Blog: Wildlife Art as a Rallying Cry in a Time of Mass Extinction. You can learn more about African Menagerie through the exhibition prospectus.
The tour will be taking African Menagerie to the Sternberg Museum of Natural History at Fort Hays State University in Kansas from October 1- December 21, 2017. From there it will continue on to museums in New Jersey and Ohio.
